Hi Tweeters -
After some gentle questioning by more knowledgable community members,
I agree that I probably did not see American-golden Plovers on San
Juan Island last Friday[12/10].
While the field marks I saw on the standing birds fit nicely with
nonbreeding AGPLs [size, back color, dark cap & bright supercilium],
I didn't get solid enough details to clinch it. Given that AGPL
aren't supposed to be around at this time of year, and given the
potential for variation in imm.BBPL, I'd say it was more likely I was
noticing the variation w/in imm.BBPLs. Sigh.
Live & learn...
